Property Description

Here at The Old House Hostel we enjoy nothing more than to relax with our guests, make connections and share stories. Most evenings are spent chatting on the balcony with a small group of travelers from all over the world. We always seem to find ourselves wrapped up in many different cultures. Whether it be sharing stories of their adventures for the day or listening to someone playing the guitar; relax and forget about your worries. We aim to provide all our guests with an escape from your hectic traveling or work schedule and bring you a home away from home.

We are in the heart of downtown San Ignacio just steps away from the town center, great bars, restaurants and archaeological sites. A great location to get around town by foot or by public transportation. If you are looking to experience San Ignacio with fellow creatives then you found the right place!

Our old colonial house rests just above the foot of one of the towns’ main hills. Its many windows and large balconies provide countless amazing viewpoints of the charming town and its hilly vista. At the Old House we offer 4 large bathrooms; two full sized bathrooms on the main level and two additional toilet and large stone shower stalls with hot and cold water on the lower level. Our fully equipped kitchen is always available to our guests along with a small outdoor prep kitchen and grill on our back deck. You will find that our central common areas make for a great place to meet fellow travelers or to find a quiet corner to enjoy a book from our book exchange. Located just downstairs is the only live music and art venue in San Ignacio, The Belize Soul Project. The bar sells local wines, made in house and beers. If your lucky to be here on a Wednesday or Friday don't miss out on the fun.

San Ignacio is a small, culture-oriented town located in the mountainous Cayo District of mainland Belize. Its location is perfect for any travelers coming from or going to Guatemala and Mexico and of course travelers looking to explore the natural treasures Belize has to offer. With many amazing water falls, rivers, caves, Mayan Temples, animal life and unique experiences, everyone will find their reason to stay a little longer than expected.

Things to note: Bar can be heard upstairs, they open from 6pm to 11pm on Wed & Fri, on occasion Sat.
We have two lovely live in pets Roach the cat and Ragga Muffin the dog.
In true Belize style all our rooms are fan only

The hostel was nice overall, secure and good location (particularly for visiting downtown). The private room was a decent size, clean and close to the shared bathroom. There were quite a few communal areas with lots of people but not much going on (a good place to stay if you want to relax) but you can still chill out with the hostel dog & cat

Really liked this hostel because it has a beautiful balcony social area where everyone can chill and socialise. Both the owners are always on staff and aldo particularly is a legend. Expect movie nights and live music on Wednesdays and Fridays!

Really great hostel! Owners, Aldo and Davina, were very friendly and helpful. It was clean, location was really good. I really like the bar underneath with live music on Wednesdays and Fridays. Kitchen had everything you need but is a little bit small for amount of guests staying there. Only thing I didn't like about the hostel was that it was allowed to smoke on the terrace. It's not pleasant for people who don't smoke like myself. Overall I enjoyed my stay and I would stay there again.
